Hey Everyone!

m1

I’m glad to say that my skin is finally getting better and better. That means I get to be more experimental with my skincare! I am truly a huge fan of Aveda products. Their Dry Remedy™shampoo has literally healed my hair after so much color and treatment damage and their hair products actually work. Even my boyfriend uses their products now on his hair! But hair isn’t the only thing that Aveda is known for, they have skincare ranges as well! In my last post, I visited the Aveda Experience Centre at Ngee Ann City for the Aroma Sensory Journey and Hairstyling Ritual where an Aveda daymaker chose the specific products that suited me best!

bathina

I confess, I’m obsessed. When I pop the cap open and smell Bathina, it takes me back to my Uni days. I wore this scent during my 2nd year of Uni when my friend gave it to me as a gift. I started wearing it after my shower daily and after that, I loved it so much, I kept wearing it out. For a while until the bottle finished, it became my classic and signature scent. That says a lot since I’m quite picky with..well how I smell.

Benefit’s Bathina is just one of those scents you can’t forget. It’s something that is perfectly sweet and flirty but still complex and complicated. It smells amazing, and to this, it’s for sure an understatement. No joke, girls. So when I saw the new bottle, you can probably say I was thrilled. The old bottle was just a pink tall glass bottle that was pretty generic. Now, it’s looks like a pink genie is going to pop out of the bottle and grant you three wishes. Now that’s an improvement.

Some may say that when it comes to make-up, there are no rules. I have to..half agree. Yes it’s great to be creative and have a blast, but if you don’t have a basic understanding of a few principles it can make it a little bit harder. Whether it be tools, technique or theory – there is a lot to be learned and when you’ve solidified a good foundation you can have even more fun! Here are five make-up tips that I believe everyone should know. They’re essential!

1. Follow your natural contours – your face is your BEST guide

When make-up artists come straight out of school, one thing I notice is that they always follow the template that they learned at school no matter what eye shape they’re working on. And that’s not a good at all. Similarly, you can’t believe that all shapes of faces were created equal. The best trick is to follow your natural contours. Take a moment and feel where your face shape is – where your eye pops out of the socket (that’s the crease) or where your cheeks sink in (that’s where you contour). Every face is different and to be honest when you’re doing make-up, the face is the best guide. For me, I use it as a map and when I do, I can basically enhance the features that are already there. It’s my make-up secret. I observe where the eye folds in and gradually add shadow to it and I observe where light hits the face and where shadow forms to create a look that suits the person I’m doing make-up on to a T.

Lancôme launches a new mascara today – the Lancôme Grandiôse Wide-Angle Fan Effect Mascara! I was given this mascara to review pre-launch and I only had time to do it today so I thought I would instead voice out my honest first impressions of it. This mascara is where  Lancôme really bends rules because there’s a unique twist to it.

If you haven’t heard of this mascara yet, the Lancôme Grandiôse Wide Angle Fan Effect Mascara boasts the ability to do all three most prized effects – lengthen, curl and volumize. Lancôme has come up with the 1st patent pending “Swan Neck” wand that helps to access all lashes from corner to corner, offers full lash coverage from root to tip and produces an evenly fanned out lash fringe. The formula of the mascara is also innovative in that it is enriched with Lancôme’s exclusive Native Rose-Cell Extract.

Hey Everyone,

so,

Everyone’s favourite fragrance is a little different. Maybe we’re into a solid musk or perhaps a fruity citrus. Whatever it is, one things for sure is that smells remind us of stuff – memories, feelings and emotions. For me, I love scents that wrap me up in a fuzzy warm blanket – they’re soft, feminine and comfortable. They’re complex enough to require a minute of thought but simple enough to warrant everyday wear.

My scent of the moment is the Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet EDP. I love this so much. It’s such a versatile and feminine scent that is light and heavy enough. I can wear it to lunch or dinner and it’s a classic fragrance people for sure turn heads to. The perfume actually celebrates Dior’s love for flowers (and mine too!) with a soft composition of Sicilian Mandarin Essence and Rose Essence on a velvety White Musk base. Christian Dior himself has said that he “created Miss Dior so I could see my dresses float out of the bottle one after another, dressing women in a trail of desire,”.

Today I thought I might share with you how I take my pictures of make-up for instagram! If you haven’t followed me yet, you totally should @roseannetangrs :D Of course what you think are the best make-up pictures is totally subjective – but I do get a good amount of compliments and questions on how I take them which is why I thought I would do this post showing you how! I actually do put a lot of effort into my pictures even though it takes you two seconds for you to scroll through them and I have a series of tips and tricks on how I get my favourite make-up products camera ready.
